If my child suffered a birth injury, how do I know if a medical mistake was made?
A birth injury can be devastating for the parents and have lifelong effects for the child. Many birth injuries lead to disabilities that require extensive care. In some cases, parents may wonder if a medical mistake was the cause of their child’s birth injury, but they are unsure how to proceed. Not every medical condition suffered by a newborn is caused by medical malpractice. However, in many cases health care providers are not forthcoming about medical errors that could have resulted in injury.

If you are having trouble getting answers from your doctor or hospital, we can use the legal process to compel your health care provider to produce important evidence in your case.
